TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Want to take your soccer game to the next level? How would you like to learn from the nation's elite college coaching staff? Then Project 4.0 is where you need to be.
Project 4.0 is a developmental soccer training program that will unveil this fall by the Florida State Soccer coaching staff in an effort to grow the game of soccer in the Tallahassee community. The training program is available for soccer players in 2nd to 12th grade and is geared toward improving a player's technique and skill both as a field player and goalkeeper. Enrollment is limited to the first 40 applicants.
Project 4.0 is designed around four basic principles: Commitment, Education, Leadership and Excellence. The staff involved in this program will encourage players to strive for excellence in both academics and athletics, aiming to have all players committed to becoming the best all-around person at all levels of soccer from recreation leagues to high school.
Florida State head coach Mark Krikorian and his staff will kick-off this year long developmental soccer program beginning August 24, 2010. The training program will incorporate 34 one and a half hour sessions throughout the year on Tuesdays culminating in April 2011. All training sessions will be held the Seminole Soccer Fields. The main focus of Project 4.0 is to improve the player's technical development, quickness and movement with the ball. In addition, each player will have the unique opportunity to work with members of the Florida State coach staff.
Project 4.0 will be under the direction of the 2002 WUSA Coach of the Year, 2006 Soccer America Coach of the Year and two-time ACC Coach of the Year (2005 & 2009) Mark Krikorian. In five seasons at the helm of the Florida State women's soccer program, Krikorian has guided the Seminoles to the quarterfinals of the NCAA Tournament each year including three consecutive College Cup appearances (2005, 2006, 2007). Assisting Krikorian with this developmental program will be Associate Head Coach Eric Bell (5th Season at FSU), Assistant Coach Mike Bristol (2nd season at FSU), Director of Soccer Operations Josh Walters (1st season at FSU), Graduate Assistant/Team Manager Jean Rettig (3rd season at FSU) and Strength and Conditioning Coach Melissa Terry (1st Season at FSU).
Cost for the developmental program is $995 for the whole year with a payment plan option available. To reserve your spot today for Project 4.0, please contact the Florida State Soccer office at 850-645-3200 or visit www.seminolesoccercamps.com and find a link to the brochure for Project 4.0.
